Ivy Loney - 8/5/2014
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013
"Northern Arizona University has a great social sciences department. My major was psychology and my minor was sociology. Almost every professor I had was engaging and genuinely cared about the students success. I worked hard to earn a 4.0 GPA but it wasn't an impossible work load. The campus is beautiful, nestled in the tall pines of northern Arizona. It is only a 2 hour drive from Sky Harbor Airport and metropolitan Phoenix. I took advantage of a summer study abroad program that was faculty lead and it was an experience I will never forget. I went on to graduate school at another university and the professors from NAU who helped me along my academic journey still check in from time to time. Flagstaff is a great place to live and NAU is an outstanding university, I would highly recommend it to anyone."

Degree: Visual Communications
Graduation Year: 2013
"Visual Communications program does not adequately prepare for a career. You learn basic art and design skills. Outside of that, you don't learn marketing, how to communicate with clients. I learned a great deal of what I know by outside research."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013
"I recently earned a Master of Administration. Only positive experiences! I was hesitant to enroll in an online program, and I only did because Northern Arizona University is a public, accredited university. Everyone at Northern Arizona University put my fears to rest. The professors were engaging and I never had a problem getting a hold of them to answer my questions. Financial Aid worked with me and answered all my questions. I was able to keep my full-time job while earning my degree (many assignments incorporated what I was already doing at work). I recently was promoted, so I’d say my degree paid off!"

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year:
"From the moment I first showed interest in this school, they have been nothing but helpful. For being a big University the teachers all have gone out of their way to make sure every student had the individual time then needed to succeed. The schools have many degrees that all have really good rapor in the job world. The want you to get experience early on in your chosen career field and provide opportunities to observe and work in your career field. I really enjoy the program I am in and I am always recommending it to people."

Ashley - 10/1/2012
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013
"NAU is the smallest university in Arizona and that is one of the main reasons I decided to attend. You get to know people in your major because your classes are smaller than most universities. Further, faculty and staff have time to get to know you since classes are smaller. People love NAU because of the weather. It does snow in Flagstaff, which is very exciting for Southern Arizona natives. People that love outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, snowboarding, fishing, biking, etc. enjoy the recreation activities that Flagstaff has to offer. Flagstaff is a college town and the locals love the students. Locals attend NAU events such as sports, plays, and film festivals. Overall, NAU has a lot to offer students, and I am glad I made the decision to go to NAU!"

Zoey Tonn - 9/20/2012
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"I have grown up around this school and have always loved the warm and welcoming environment it gives off. The classes are often smaller and the professors are the ones actually teaching the class and want to make sure you do well and understand all the material. Northern Arizona University is a student friendly campus with much to offer for every individual."

Ivy - 9/16/2012
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012
"My degree program was more on campus than online. I did however take several online courses. My husband is also doing distance learning through NAU which is mostly online. I feel that they give a quality education and that the professors care about your learning. While some classes were easier than others I felt that the teachers challenged me to learn. The campus is beautiful and the city of Flagstaff is full of wonderful people and lots to do!"
